We traveled to Santa Teresa with our 12 year old son who is a wheelchair user. Despite the hotel being less than handicap accessible (which we were aware of before making our reservation), our experience was incredible. The friendly staff went above and beyond the call of duty to help us with anything we needed for our son and made...

We stayed on the top floor of the beach house (room 21) where we had an ocean view and were just steps from the beach. Because the property is nestled within the very tropical forest, don't be alarmed by the iguanas, squirrels, crabs, and other fauna that scurry along the paths that interconnect the open air restaurant, yoga studio and...

We stayed at Tropico Latino for 11 nights so we really got a good feel for the place. Our stay started off a bit rough in room #23 - the entry level room that is very close to the beach and has a very big front patio with outdoor couch - but was very mildewy. We arrived late and exhausted,...

Small boutique hotel right in the heart of this funky surfing village and right on the beach. The staff is awesome (friendly and professional) especially the receptionist Evelyn! It has a very rustic charm with various cabanas and standard rooms (well above standard in my book). The pool located between the restaurant and beach is stunning and the beach has...

Thank you for your kind comments, we will share them with Evelyn and Mary :) The water at the restaurant is filtered and served in a glass bottle to prevent the use of plastic bottles and minimize our impact on the environment. This practice has helped significantly reduce the amount of plastic used. It is not regular tap water and...

Wonderful time in Costa Rica! The hotel provided help with everything. Any activity you wanted, they were able to call and arrange for you which included horseback riding, ATV rental, massages, etc. Great surfing with mellow crowd located out front of the casitas. Highly recommend staying here!

I recently stayed at Hotel Tropico Latino with a Puravida Adventures women's surfing retreat. The staff at Hotel TL were extremely accommodating and I loved every minute of my stay.

“Cabina 8 has a better ocean view than Cabina 7. #23 backs up to the suite so if there is a large group or children, expect noise.”
